Sells $16,000 coin for $1650, then asks buyer to give it back.

Can you say bonehead?

No BONEHEAD would be GIVING it back. It's not like you gave me the incorrect change. I correct retail clerks for doing that ALL the time. Both ways.

I like how wifey explained that she kinda likes it.

I also like how three levels of people had a chance  to correct the mistake.  It's not like some esoteric medal, it's in every price god out there.

And as for the investment value of coins:  A truly rare certified coin is advertised for a week at 90% discount before even getting an inquiry, and the buyer still wants a discount!

They had a chance to fix it when he called and again a chance before mailing it out.  I once had a piece of gold jewelry on website for 1 cent or $1 (I forget which) because I used excel to upload inventory and forgot that commas in the price confused the cart software (it was supposed to be over $1,000).  But, when person bought it, I simply canceled the order and refunded due to price mistake, just like all the big retailers do.  I can see the seller's point of view, but once it's been delivered to the buyer the transaction's a done deal.    Good on the buyer for standing his ground.

Every grocery store flier has a note, not responsible for typos.

Like I said, it's something that comes on the market twice a century.

It's listed in Redbook, Greysheet, Blackbook, Bluesheet, Std Cat, NGC website, PCGS website, etc.  If I were hiring someone to sell coins, I'd at least expect them to know how to look up the price of a coin.

I guess customer advisors are like assistant managers.
